BRILLIANCY OF THE "SUN."

The Moon, as is generally known, shines with a borrowed light, while the Sun is popularly supposed to manufacture its and to arrange its pyrotechnics on the premises. Our N.Y. Sun, however, does not always manufacture its own beams. B most brilliant of the "sunbeams," for instance, published in that journal of November 1st, is the quaint and charming lit there headed "Sally Salter," and written originally for Punchinello, in the issue of which publication for Oct. 1st it mad appearance, under the title of "The Lovers." We congratulate the Sun on having thus successfully lit its pipe with Punch fire, though we think it might have been gracious enough to have acknowledged the favor. 83 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK. 4

A PEOPLE OF TASTE.

The extraordinary liberality of the generous people of Connecticut has frequently excited apprehension in the minds of friends, that, sooner or later, as the result of their spendthrift career, they must come to beggary. But we are glad to hea are making an effort in New Haven to reform. The grocery men there say that their customers taste so much before the up their minds to buy anything, that what with gratuitous slices of cheese and specimen mouthfuls of sugar and sample of molasses, the shop-keeper's profits are most dolefully diminished. A particularly BLUE LAW against this economic will have the effect of sobering down these brilliant Cullers.

"What Answer?"

Is it likely that HORACE GREELEY, or any other man, could steer this country through its difficulties by means of th the soil?

ANY MORE CAVES?

About the dreariest magazine or other reading we know of—and we get a deal of it, too—is that which describes the vi enthusiastic persons to big caves underground, very dark, damp, dreary, ugly, funereal—with winding ways and huge h water with eyeless fish, and certain drippings called stalagmites and stalactites. The enthusiasts, who always possess th treasure self-satisfaction, and a boundless capacity for wonder (which is always ready to exercise itself with anything t however ugly), and the "Palaces," and "Halls," and "Cascades," and "Altars," and "Bridal Wreaths" they see there are n finer than real ones (if you would believe them!) but so grand and wonderful as to be really indescribable. So we find t their turgid and stupid reports, which are all alike, and all dreary and silly. We have never heard of anybody who got ex these pictures (except the artists themselves); and positively there is no flatter reading anywhere than these gushing not big caves.

GEOMETRICAL.

Why is it that we hear so much of the proper "Sphere" of woman? Here is that noble exile, the Princess Editha Montez, again, and her subject, of course, is the Spherical one. So when Mesdames Stanton, Dickinson, Anthony, Howe—all th lecturers—discourse, they forget the platform which is plane, and discuss the "sphere" which is mysterious. Can it poss that it is because these amiable gentlewomen are always going round? Or is it because they cannot help reasoning in a is there some occult relation between spheres and hoops? Or has the wedding-ring something to do with it? It should be understood, that these are questions addressed solely to male mathematicians; for Mr. P. is unlike John Graham, and do 83 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK. 5

SECRETION EXTRAORDINARY.

It is done by Mollusks. We can tell you even the precise kind—it is the Gasteropod kind. Not only this, we know the ve himself that does it. (And you will say that "devil" is not a particle too rough a term, when we come to tell what it is he "secretes.") It is the Dolium galea, good friends, and we could tell you six other kinds that are suspected of this meanne 'em is the Pleurobranchidium—which, of course, you have often heard of.

Well, what do these wretched Mollusks go and secrete? We can tell you—we, who know everything. It is sulphuric aci do they steal it? Oh, no; they "evolve" it—probably from the "depths of their own consciousness."

And what do they do it for? Well, they bore with it. Give 'em a chance, and they'll go through you. The acid eats its wa they eat their way. That way is not ours, exactly; but we have known human beings about as venomous as this creature precisely the same tendency to pierce one. They do it with their tongues, it is true, but the perforation is complete.

THE WRONG PLACE.

We are unusually astonished to find the Female Reformers holding their meeting in this city in Apollo Hall. It is well k Apollo was a god of the male persuasion; and to have everything "mix up well," these philosophical dames should hav Minerva Hall or a Diana Hall of their own. Besides, was not Apollo the God of Harmony? Precious little of that same w this meeting; for there was the Medical Mary Walker trying to make a speech, while the Chairwoman put her down, ca Mary de Medici to cry out with shrill indignation: "Tyrant!"

urposely or otherwise, we are all on our way to California now—men, women, and children—graybeards and babies. We did Europe two or three years ago, so that ide obsolete, excepting as a bridal tour; then, too, the more peaceably inclined, who ha the European elephant, would prefer to wait until that country is again in a state of quiescence. But Chicago is constantly sending out her adventure-loving citizens up Pacific road, each one of whom looks, sees, admires, and suddenly develops an epi talent hitherto undreamed of by his most enthusiastic friends. There's our MELISSA instance—she never used to have a pen in her hand more than once in the course of months, and now—why, we really seem to have another SÉVIGNÉ budding right i midst. She went to California, saw all the sights, and wondered, and admired, and w floods of eloquence that had so long been slumbering now burst forth beyond all hi control. She stopped at Salt Lake, and called upon BRIGHAM YOUNG, and was s disgusted with the mighty prophet that she would not look at him. Yet, considering circumstance, she described his personal appearance with wonderful vividness and She indulged in the usual amount of stern remonstrance and indignation, that seem almost indispensable to the occasion. ALONZO asked why she called upon the dre and somewhat maliciously inquired if it was not for the express purpose of being sh horrified, thus affording a fine chance to moralize, and display the elevation of her own principles, and, in fact, help to good article; but MELISSA most vigorously denied the soft impeachment. Then she saw the sad wives, whose days of are gone by, and the merry ones,—who don the cap and bells deliberately; and for their benefit she expended just the p degree of astonishment and sympathy—so fully substantiating the sound and praiseworthy condition of her own mind a

This excellent young woman also caught glimpses of the red man, and here was another glorious opportunity to display literary genius—and she did not let the occasion slip—O no! it produced a plaintive little rhapsody of pity and regret, s "Mr. Lo!" is apt to inspire in the hearts of the young and romantic, although if MELISSA were to find herself alone in with the faintest suspicion of "Mr. Lo!" meandering anywhere near, she would most likely apply her hand involuntarily trembling chignon, and regret as keenly as all hard-hearted persons, that civilization has not carried out the process of extermination even more thoroughly than it has done. Indeed, she would probably wish the red gentleman at the bottom Red Sea, or in some other equally damp and discouraging situation. The noble-hearted braves are so much prettier to re than to encounter, and the thrill occasioned by the sight of a bloody hatchet suspended over the intricate elaboration wh fondly term a head, though more exciting perhaps, would scarcely be as delightful as that awakened by some perfectly stirring ballad of the red man's wrongs.

MELISSA'S ideas of refinement met with a great shock. She concluded that the Indians' acquaintance with soap and w be extremely limited, and thought that the distribution amongst them of several boxes of COLGATE'S best would be a delicate courtesy, and true missionary enterprise. In looking at these noble representatives of savage life, she was great to discover where the dirt ended and the Indian began: but philanthropy should overlook such trifles. Philanthropy shou squeamish.

MELISSA, ecstasized over Lake Tahoe, and Yo Semité, and the Big Trees, and was delighted, enchanted, and enraptur most thorough and conscientious manner. She revelled amongst California grapes and pears, and quaffed the California with appropriate delight and hilarity. She also studied JOHN CHINAMAN in all his phases, and came to the conclusio would do. She thought it would be a seraphic experience to see the pride and importance of Misses BRIDGET and GR taken down a little. JOHN would certainly not possess the voluble eloquence—of the first, nor the stolid impudence of second, nor would he have, like the pretty Swede, a train of admirers a mile in length. Of course he would not have the advantages to recommend him. But then one can get along without florid oratory in the kitchen, and although a lady m highly pleased and flattered to see an unending procession of admirers file in and out of her drawing-rooms, still she ha decided objection to seeing the same imposing spectacle in her kitchen. Women, will be inconsistent.

MELISSA particularly admired JOHN'S manner of ironing. She thought it peculiar but genteel, and gentility is always There must be something about the climate of California that is especially inspiring to authors—a kind of magnetism in 83 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK. 7

atmosphere that draws out all the literary talent which may be lying dormant in their souls—so that any one desirous of a writer, has only to take a trip to that fascinating region, and at some unexpected moment he will awake with rapture a to the blessed consciousness of having blossomed into a flower of genius, and, as such, will feel privileged at once to d family, his friends, and the world in general, with the brilliant results of his most delightful discovery.

THE PROFIT OF PURITAN PRISONS.

Spain has commissioned a Mr. AZCARATE, a Cuban, to visit and report upon our penal institutions, and the gentlema the country. We trust he will not fail to visit the Connecticut State Prison. There he would unquestionably obtain nume for improving the Spanish system of prison torture, or even that in vogue in his native land, for political prisoners. The learn how Yankee thrift, applied in this direction, makes the starving of convicts even a more profitable business than manufacturing wooden nutmegs. Perhaps not the least valuable information he would gain, would be the best method o obnoxious prisoners into revolt, and thus obtaining a chance for disposing of them, legally, by a capital conviction.

AN OPEN CONGRESSIONAL COUNTENANCE.

It is oddly enough objected to the re-election of a certain Member of Congress from Massachusetts, that "he can't open mouth." It might be answered that Gen. BUTLER is quite able to open his mouth wide enough for the whole delegation mouth may be opened for two purposes, viz., speech-making and swallowing; and it never appeared to us that there wa either of Bolting or Bellering in the House of Representatives. However notably Honorable Gentlemen may play the ga of Gab or Grab, it isn't so clear that their constituents are much benefited by these accomplishments. If all they want is open-mouthed Member, why don't the Massachusetts men import a first-class crocodile, and send him to the National M in Washington?

SPREAD OF AMERICAN PRINCIPLES.

It is with a heart full of patriotic pride and gratitude that Mr. PUNCHINELLO observes the adoption, in his dear native the manners and customs of the Land of his Adoption. At an election recently held in Rome, about something or some thing, one enterprising Roman has been discovered who voted "yes" twenty-five times in as many electoral urns—there be presumed, earning a good deal of money. We have a more lively hope for charming Italy when we find even a singl exhibiting a skill which would do honor to the most accomplished professional voter in New York. There is something encouraging in finding the Sons of ST. PETER becoming, every one of them, Re-Peters.

OUR EYE-WITNESS AT THE ELECTIONS.

We suppose that no individual has rendered more invaluable service as a historian than the distinguished Eye-witness o newspapers. The friends of PUNCHINELLO will therefore be rejoiced to hear that this accurate reporter was engaged for our readers the progress of the late elections.

Some time ago, the Eye-witness set about organizing the campaign by the masterly and novel plan of inducing the lead opposing political parties to nominate different men for the same office. The effect was electrical. Immediately on thes nominations being made public, the people rose like one man, and began canvassing like a great many different and ve quarrelsome men. Target companies sprang from the recesses of the East Side, like ghosts from the rocks in Der Freisc drums and fifes resounded; cannons boomed; fireworks burst into flame. The Eye-witness, having thus set the universe satisfactorily by the ears, got into his second-story front, and contemplated the campaign with serene complacency from window.

He had not to wait very long for a Mass Meeting to be formed under his very nose, and, consequently, within range of witnessing and recording Eye. This Mass Meeting was conducted by the "Intelligent" Party, and was announced to be s followed by a Multitudinous Assemblage of the "Enlightened" Party. These two factions, as it will readily be observed their names indicate, are of the most widely varying character and scope; a fact to be further illustrated by the proceedi followed.

The intelligent began to assemble early in the evening, to the sound of guns and drums and sky-rockets. These accomp were intended to get their spirits up, but the Intelligent persistently applied themselves to getting spirits down; and whe processes had continued for a reasonable length of time, speakers began to appear upon the stands. The first man who a them was the Commercial Candidate.

"Fellow-citizens," said he, "why are you here? To elect me, of course. (Immense cheering.) And why will you elect me honest man: I want no office. (Laughter and cheers.) Ah, my friends, you elect me because you are now paying $5.36 o pound of Peruvian Bark and Egyptian Mummy which you use in every-day life, and because you know that when I am other party will be out!" (Continued applause.)

Next rose an ex-Senator, who said he had come wholly unprepared to speak, but, being unexpectedly called upon, had brief jottings on a visiting-card, to which he would now refer. He then spoke for one hour and three-quarters. At the clo was an intermission for carrying off the dead. JONES, the candidate for the office of Vituperator, then cleared his throat savagely.

"My friends," he began, "BROWN, the opposing candidate, is a scamp, and he knows it. If any man says he isn't, he is. cheers.) Do you ask me to prove it? Prove an axiom! (Applause.) Who but a damned rascal would run against me at ele tell you it is assault and battery! (Sounds of approbation.) In conclusion, I will only add that Brown is an infernal bumm sneak." (Cheers.)

83 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK.

The Intelligent then dispersed in a splendidly ferocious and bloody-minded condition, fully primed for the election. Sh afterward the Enlightened appeared upon the scene in the following ORDER OF PROCESSION. Cordon of Police. Drum. Committee of Arrangements. Fife. Target Company. Drum and Fife. Small boys. Apple-women. Drum. The Enlightened candidate for the Vituperator was the first on the stand. He rushed forward and said:—

"The Vituperative candidate of the Intelligent let fall in a former speech some subtle or carefully worded innuendoes as character. I have only to say that his speech was a tissue of falsehood. I will trespass upon your patience further, to add JONES is an infernal bummer and a sneak. If he is not, my fellow-citizens, why then I am. (Indignant cries of 'That's so friends, you cannot doubt this reasoning. The facts are then conclusive. Either he is a bummer, or I am. It is therefore y on the 8th November, to elect me at once and in fact to the office of Vituperator, and prospectively to those of Mayor, and President of the United States." (Prolonged cheering.)

Mr. DE MAGOG, a very giant of eloquence, a Gog as well as Magog of oratory, next set the enlightened agog with a s

"Fellow-citizens! Men and Brothers! Victory or defeat! Liberty or death! Glorious republic! Stars and Stripes! Down w traitor! To the polls! Red fire—blood and thunder"—(voice drowned in shouts of wild enthusiasm.)

The Eye-witness, meantime, had become distracted with harassing doubts. Subscribing fully to the politics of PUNCHI which is the only paper he reads, he had hitherto announced himself as a member of the Right Party. Being, however, o conviction, he had unfortunately permitted both parties to convict him. In this awful crisis Reason appeared about to to her throne. The Eye-witness thrust his head wildly from the window, and shrieked to the crowd below: "Where's the Ri belong to the Right Party. I want to hear the Right Man!!"

At once the mob became a sea of upturned faces. The Enlightened, together with a large number of the Intelligent, who lingered on the scene, with one common consent lifted up their voices and groaned. The groan was but a premonitory t shower of sticks, stones, whiskey-bottles, and superannuated eggs. The Eye-witness closed the window with an undign and retired into the depths of his chamber, where he remained until after the election. Owing to a dimness of vision, res from the eggs-cruciating condition of his ocular organs, the occupation of the Eye-witness was from that moment gone this fact must be attributed his inability to state, with any certainty, whether the Right Party has succeeded in putting th Man in the Right Place; but he rather thinks it has.

SARSFIELD YOUNG ON FORT SUMTER.

The country was indignant that Fort Sumter was not reinforced. Major Anderson's supplies were nearly exhausted, and twenty thousand men, with equipments and rations. If the Government couldn't afford the rations—very well: it ought given him the men.

I am speaking of the late rebellion, which GREELEY, HEADLEY, and others have written up. Although a publishing Hartford, Conn., own most of the facts of the war, which they peddle out only by subscription, they can give the public of the secret history of the Fort Sumter affair. That remains to be written, while WELLER and I remain to write it. The Ex-Secretary has gracefully left it to me to describe the midnight session of the Cabinet at which I chanced to be presen I was boarding at the White House at the time, and as President LINCOLN assured me it would be rather interesting, I persuaded to attend. "The fact is, the crisis reminds me," said he, of a little story of a horse-trot in Arkansas—" "Sir," interrupted I, "it reminds me of a dozen stories, one of AEsop's fables, and two hundred lives of CHAUCER." He was afraid to continue.

As the clock struck twelve, he called the meeting to order and remarked: "Gentlemen, ANDERSON is in Sumter. The q now is,—what will he do with it?"

South Carolina was out. BUCHANAN had done nothing. Everywhere was distrust. (That very day they had refused, on Pennsylvania avenue, to trust me for a spring overcoat.) STANTON was getting his dark lantern ready for nightly inter SUMNER and WENDELL PHILLIPS in a vacant lot upon the outskirts of the Capitol. Universal gloom prevailed.

SEWARD opened the discussion. He said it was contemplated to throw four thousand men into Fort Sumter. We could we did, it would only be one of the first throes of a civil conflict, a war long and bloody, which he would venture to pre be protracted even to the extent of ninety days. Were we prepared for that? He would like to hear from that pure patriot Secretary of War, on this point.

Amid murmurs of applause, Gen. CAMERON rose to say that he was wholly unprepared to make a speech; but he own condemned muskets, which he stood ready to dispose of to the Government at four times their original cost. He should the Fort be covered with several thicknesses of Pennsylvania railroad iron. It would protect our gallant troops, and he w he had always been, in favor of protection. Besides, he knew parties who could get up a ring in the way of army blanke

Mr. CHASE spoke rather thick and fast, but I understood him to pronounce in favor of that platform which would get t votes. "If the people think it ought to be done, why, do it. The country needs taxation, and is anxious to have me Presid I can borrow money enough in Wall street to pay the passage of a moderate number of men to Charleston, but they mu account be CHASE men. I don't want any of my friends killed off before the next Presidential election." "What the Administration lacks," chimed in BLAIR, "is backbone. Powder and ball, and blood are my sentiments. Fill army and navy offices with the BLAIR family, and secession is dead."

SEWARD again: "Strengthen Pickens, and let Sumter go. Our soldiers will find it healthier and more commodious at P have the Powhatan sent there forthwith."

Hereupon Mr. GIDEON WELLES woke up and remarked, in a strain of apology, that be hadn't read his commission ye was his impression that he was the head of what was called the Navy Department. Coming from an inland town, he did know whether the Secretary of State or himself had the ordering about of our national vessels; but he rather thought he relieve his friend SEWARD of that burden. He had talked with several old sea-dogs. They all agreed that the success o depended on its feasibility. Capt. Fox, a private citizen of Massachusetts, had been down there with a horse and buggy, reports that a squad of marines could do the job up in good style.

Mr. BATES was called upon, and stated that strengthening Sumter, without giving the Southerners four weeks' notice o intention, would not, in his opinion, be unconstitutional.

At this juncture Mr. FLOYD (who, having acquired the habit of attending BUCHANAN'S cabinet meetings, had not qu over it) put his head in for a moment to suggest, that if the Black Republican Government would evacuate all the forts Southern territory, remunerate his friends for their expenses, and execute a quit-claim deed of Washington and the nati property to JEFF. DAVIS and other Southern leaders, the proposition might possibly be accepted, and trouble avoided. Mr. SEWARD rose to add only a word, and that word was "Pickens." The Secretary of the Interior observed, that as Charleston harbor wasn't in his department, he would say nothing.

Mr. BATES urged that the people of his section were loyal to the flag; in fact, they not only wanted the flag but the Ca and the national buildings (except the monument), removed to St. Louis; if they couldn't get that, they might be satisfie Sumter were towed around there, up the Mississippi. It would certainly be a good deal safer there.

Mr. GIDEON WELLES wanted it distinctly understood that Gen. SCOTT, Gen. HOLT, Capt. FOX and the Powhatan the country if Mr. SEWARD would let them; otherwise he would make a minute of these deliberations, and if his frien YOUNG (whom he was pleased to see present) didn't expose it, he himself would put it in the shape of a lively sketch, to the magazines.

"Well—now," said Mr. LINCOLN, after patiently waiting, "this reminds me of the man in Pomeroy, Ohio, who kept w called an 'eating saloon.' One morning, a tall hoosier came in and called for ham and eggs. 'Can't giv 'em to ye, stranger proprietor, 'but what'll ye hav' t'drink?—don't keep nothin' but a bar.' 'Yer don't? Then what'n thunder yer got that sign for?' for the fellow was a little mad. 'Why yer see I call her a eating saloon, 'cos I reckon she eats up all the profits." This beautiful and appropriate anecdote, which seemed to throw a flood of light upon the critical State question under consideration, pleased every one except FLOYD, who swore it was ungenerous and unchivalric. Hastily withdrawing, threatened to telegraph it verbatim to the insurgents; it would fire the Southern heart. SEWARD said he was going home, as he had already sent the Powhatan to PICKENS. Mr. LINCOLN yawned, and turning to me, inquired: "Well, SARSFIELD, you see what a man's got to do to run this machine,—now what's your advice?"

"Your Excellency," I replied, "there's a man in the tanning business at Galena, in your State. Telegraph him at once. Hi GRANT, and if you give him the tools to work with, he'll straighten everything out for you as neat as a pin."

The meeting dissolved without taking heed of my suggestion, and the world knows the result. However, there's one thi proud of. I claim to have discovered GRANT four years before WASHBURN did. That's the secret why I can have any want under the present administration. SARSFIELD YOUNG.

To illustrate! The Italian opera is fashionable, though not one in ten of the peo composing an average audience understand a word that is said or sung. The Fr is less fashionable, but perhaps one-third of the audience can understand the le ingenious of the indelicate jokes. The English opera is not fashionable, but eve understand every word that Miss RICHINGS or Miss HERSEE pronounces. T undoubtedly stand in the relation of cause and effect.

To be sure, the words of an opera are a matter of very little consequence, the m speaking as plainly as the clearest of Saxon sentences. But the fashionable pub less of music than it knows of languages, and would be quite capable of mistak Dio" for a comic song, and "Libiamo" for a lover's lamentation, were not the tr libretto of Traviata at hand to supply them and the critics of the minor papers, cue for the display of appropriate emotion. Singers, especially, understand the of the above stated axiom. Hence, those who are deficient in voice avoid the E stage. Miss KELLOGG, for example, never attempted English opera, because that people who had heard ROSE HERSEE or CAROLINE RICHINGS would her claim to be "the greatest living Prima Donna," should she compete with those birds of English song. Wherefore, sh confined herself to the Italian stage, sure of pleasing a public that knows nothing of music, but is confident that a lady w the friendship of Madison avenue must be a great singer. PAREPA, on the contrary, turned from the Italian to the Engl stage,—but then PAREPA had a voice.

How many years is it since CAROLINE RICHINGS first sung in English opera? It is an ungallant question, but the ans be still more ungallant were it not that Miss RICHINGS is an artist; and with artists the crown of youth never loses the of its laurel leaves. At any rate, she has sung long enough to compel the recognition of her claims to our gratitude and a She is not faultless in her method, but she differs from other great American prime donne in the important particular of possessing voice enough to fill an auditorium larger than the average minstrel hall.

At present she is filling NIBLO'S GARDEN with her voice and its admirers. We go to hear her. PALMER and ZIMME clad in velvet and fine linen, flit gorgeously about the lobby, and are mistaken, by rural visitors, for JIM FISK and HOR GREELEY—concerning whom the tradition prevails in rural districts that they are clothed in a style materially d from that affected by King Solomon at the period of his greatest glory. We find our seats, and mentally remarking that is the one theatre in this city from which it would be possible to escape with whole bones and coat in case of fire, we aw contented minds the lifting of the curtain.

In time the opera begins, and a select company of young men who are standing in the rear of the audience improve eve opportunity for breaking into rapturous applause. Their zeal occasionally outruns their discretion, and they finally ruin of Miss RICHINGS to execute a florid cadenza at the end of one of her arias. An intelligent usher is therefore detailed them into a comprehension of their duties, after which they applaud with a discretion which produces almost exactly th spontaneous enthusiasm.

Remarks a young lady near us, who is dressed with much wealth of contrasting colors:—"This isn't half so nice a Italian opera. Miss RICHINGS can't dress half so nicely as Miss KELLOGG, and then you don't see any fashionable p The DAVIDS, the ABRAHAMS, the AARONS, the NOAHS, that handsome Mr. JACOBS, and that delightful Mr. MOSES,—all these elegant young men with beautiful eyes and curly hair that dress in velvet coats and diamond studs—there isn't one of them here. Our best society never goes to any opera but the real Italian opera." LIGHT-HAIRED YOUNG MAN.—"But, my dear, it seems to me that your best society must consist chiefly of Jews—judging from the names you mention." YOUNG LADY.—"Well, what if it does? They are rich, are they not? What more could you want?"

LIGHT-HAIRED YOUNG MAN.—"What, indeed! But the music is just as good as it would be if the fashionab were here,—isn't it?"

SHE.—"The music as good! Why, Charles, everybody knows that the Italian opera music is perfectly lovely. Th English, you know."

HE.—"It is precisely the same. Here the Somnmabula is sung with English instead of Italian words. That doesn't single note."

SHE.—"You are too ridiculous! The idea of attempting to make me believe that this is just like the Italian Opera suppose I knows anything about music?"

OLD GENTLEMAN.—"I heard CAROLINE RICHINGS sing in 1808,—I think it was. I tell you she sing now tan she did then, but the stupid public never appreciated her. I recollect saying to KEAN—not CHARLES, y but the KEAN—that I knew a young lady that would be a splendid singer some of these days—meaning CAROLINE, of course. 'Well, sir,' says KEAN, 'what of it; you can't drink her, can you?' Gad! he was the best man for ever knew. To give you an instance; one night KEAN and I, and old SMITH,—you don't remember old SMITH, he played old men at the Boston Theatre sixty years ago; I never met a jollier fellow,—I remember his saying on when JUNICS BOOTH was playing—let me see, what was the play; it wasn't the Apostate, I hardly think, for&#

And I say—still thinking of NILSSON—to an experienced theatre-goer,—"Why does WATSON ab NILSSON?" And he answers, with the contemptuous, but obviously honest inquiry—"Who's WATSON?" Really appalled by the suggestion that there exists a man with soul and things so completely dead as not to have heard WATSON, I change my question and ask him: "Why does the Season abuse NILSSON?"

HE.—"The Season, my young friend, is a programme paper that is circulated gratuitously and depends for suppo advertizing patronage. A few managers permit it to be circulated in their theatres; the remaining managers will not adm Among the latter are Mr. WALLACK, and MAX STRAKOSCH.

HIRAM GREEN AND FEMALE SUFFRAGE. His Experience with the Advocates of the 10th Amendment.

On the last eleckshun day, I was servin as Inspecter of Eleckshun, when a passil of wimmen, drest partly in men's habil walkt up to the ballit box. They was headed by old SARY YOOMANS, who has been an old made for more'n 1/2 Sentury. Steppin up close to the railin where votes is put in, Miss YOOMANS thus to me did say:— "Square GREEN, wee've come to cast the soffrige of a down-trodden race: Will you receive our votes?" "Not exzactly I wont, my hi toned Greshun benders," was my reply. "Do you know who we air, sir?" cride a long, leen, lank, rale-fence-lookin femail, whose nose looked as if sheed been a bladder of black snuff.

"Well! sweet wolfs in lambs clothin," said I, puttin on one of my shrewed expreshuns, "you look as if you was a lot of, strong-minded femails, who was up to snuff, but, in an endevor to scratch somebody bare-boned, you'd lost your footin tumbled slap-bang into a coal-hole."

"We air, sir," says another ethereal-lookin hearthstun depopulater, "members of the Skeensboro Sore-eye-siss Society. wimmens has got rites, which man won't let her have.

Durin the a-4-said bust of elokence, about 75 wimmen was holdin ballits for me to take, while others were vilently swi gingham parasols over my bald head. All seemed as if they was jest bilin over to get their clutches about my breethin apparatus. Says I:

"What! miserable man, woodest-ist thou deny us the ballit?" screemed another femail, as she tore a 2-bushel waterfall f head, and, wildly swingin it in the air, dirty stockins and old clothes fell into promiscous heeps all about her. "With all doo respect to the sects," says I, gettin madder and madder all the while, "you can jest bet your Sunday close woodest."

"Hard-harted old man, yool rue this day," they all cride in Koruss, and the hull lot commenced snivellin, as if their hart busted.

"Kind, noble, beautiful sir! we langwish to cast our suffrages," says a big fat woman, about the size of a lode of hay, as shoved her ballit under my nose.

"Madam," says I, swellin up with accumulated rage, "langwish and rip and tare things as much as you mindter— stuff this ere ballit box with illegal votes as long as Ime boss of it—that's what's the matter—and I want yo understand I mean bizzinezs."

FRESH FROM THE FLOWERY KINGDOM.

The world is justly indignant at the accounts of the Chinese massacres of the missionaries who have perilled their lives so far to teach them Christianity. Recently, for example, a young lady teacher from Boston was so terribly stoned by so unregenerate little pig-tailed fiends in Canton, that she died the next day. It is dreadful to think how savage the instinct heathen are.

P.S.—Since the above was set up in type, MR. PUNCHINELLO has learned that the Canton in which this occur place is not in China, but is a thriving village in Norfolk county, Massachusetts, about eighteen miles from Boston, and assailants were consequently not pig-tailed heathen, but genuine Christian children, who, in a few years, will belong to cultivated voters of Massachusetts. This action, consequently, was not dictated by unregenerate barbarism, but was inte simply as a protest (rough, we confess, but effectual, we trust) against these new-fangled ideas of women's rights. Wha have women to be trying to teach? Let them stay at home, and if they want to know anything, ask their husbands, there they are unmarried, let them wait until they get husbands. We must not let our natural gallantry interfere with our rever respect for the rights of ignorance, which will eventually vote.

A THRICE BLESSED CITY.

There is a city in Illinois called St. Genevieve. By some hocus-pocus known to accomplished politicians, this city has h Mayor since the 4th of June, 1867. In the absence of definite information upon the subject, we take it for granted that S Genevieve must be a most delightful place to live in, and specially so, because, as we are further informed, they have n 83 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK. 24

Aldermen there either. More delightful still, as there is nobody authorized to assess taxes, the fortunate inhabitants do n any. Of course, if this state of primitive bliss could last, Mr. PUNCHINELLO would make immediate arrangements to St. Genevieve; but the courts have ordered the citizens to elect a Mayor immediately, so that this little heaven upon ear soon have ceased to exist.

There is gloom everywhere; applications to serve in the ranks have diminished, and the price of pocket-handkerchiefs h increased. JULES FAVRE writes, under cover of confidence, to the prefect here, that since the interview of which I ga account he has had a severe attack of gumboils, and despairs of softening the heart of BISMARCK. I stole the letter for purpose of copying it, but it was stolen from me in turn by a nefarious emissary of the London Times, who has not how dared to use it. The greatest activity is manifested in the making of balloons. The administration labors under the delus and oiled silk may yet prove the Palladium of French liberty. I have remonstrated unavailingiy against this singular infa held up to the Rump Council now sitting in this city the example of VICTOR HUGO as a fearful warning. He came fro Guernsey under a pressure of gas; he entered Paris with the volatile essence oozing from every hair on his head; he loa artillery of his rhetoric with gas; he blazed, away at the Germans with gas, and yet, unable to get rid of such afflatus fas he exploded in the very midst of his pyrotechnics, and now lies high and dry on "this bank and shoal of time" like a ven rhinoceros extinguished by its own snorting. I am sorry to say it, but the great peril of France at this moment is gas. To GAMBETTA. Ah! yes, touching GAMBETTA. You may have heard that he has issued a proclamation or two. There a in the soul of a Frenchman, where the inspiration of mighty words breeds like "flies in the shambles." Such a soul has GAMBETTA. He is all language. If you were to cut him up in little bits and put each atom under a microscope, you wo every molecule the text of some proclamation. The genii of syntax and prosody are his guardian angels, and the love of is the be-all and the end-all of his political existence. He loves not GARIBALDI. He would have done violence to his grandmother rather than consent to the invitation of the Italian liberator. For short, he calls him "GARRY." Standing in the Hotel de Ville, talking to a group of eager listeners, with his arms wildly gesticulating and his nose contemptuously towards the empyrean, he asks: "Who is this GARRY? What is he? Why is he—?" "Stop," I calmly interpollate, "profane not the high calling of the Italian hero with frivolous conundrums."

"Jerk that monster out of my sight!" roared GAMBETTA to a sergent de ville, and pointing his long, skinny fore-finge me. I turned mournfully upon the crowd, and asked in a plaintive tone:— "You hear what he says. Do lunatic asylums exist in vain? Men of Tours, is there a 'jerkist' among you?"

They must have observed that my feelings were moved, for they came between me and the officer, as if to protect the l 'Twas a kind movement, but useless; as I couldn't have hurt him.

"Monsieur GAMBETTA," I then went on to say, "don't you think that this horrible epidemic of gas, that is now filling deleterious effluvia the brains and the throat of the French Government, ought to be stopped? Don't you think, Monsieu GAMBETTA, that you, yourself, could cut off your supply-pipe for a while and still have enough to light up with on p occasions?"

I rested my right fore-finger upon one side of my nose and struck an attitude of interrogation while putting these questi Minister's face turned to an ashen hue, and then the blood came coursing back like lava to the Crater's surface, without through.

POEMS OF THE CRADLE. CANTO XI.

Little Bo-Peep has lost his sheep, And don't know where to find them. Let them alone and they'll come home, And bring their tails behind them. The Poet having now advanced so far in his work as to make a very respectable collection of poems, and beginning to r matter, casts his eyes around him in search of aid, hoping to find inspiration in some fortuitous moment from the many 83 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK. 27

incidents that are always occurring, and which only observing minds would notice. For the time he sees nothing that w suggest even to the most sparkling intellect the shadow of a rhyme, and he begins to be in despair. He walks up and do dingy room, thrusts his long fingers amid the raven locks that adorn his poetical cranium, and gently at first, then furiou irritates the cuticle of his imaginative head-piece, hoping thereby to waken up his ideas and find a foundation upon wh another stone in the edifice of his never-fading glory.

This process does not seem to be as successful as usual: the ideas refuse to come at his bidding, and he glares around in consternation, Can it be possible that he has exhausted himself; that his ideas are entirely run out; that the fountain is d Muse has ceased to smile upon him; that he must descend from his high elevation as the poet of the family, the hope an his friends and the admiration of himself, and sink to the level of his earthy brothers and become one of them, no better worse? No—perish the thought! never again will he mingle with those rude and vulgar natures, having no though feelings above their creature comforts: content to live like animals, uninspired by the divine afflatus, untouched by the Full of determined energy never to yield the high position he has acquired, he rushes forth into the open air and takes h way through the green meadows and leafy wilds. Here, sitting on the stump of an old tree, he spies little Bob Peepers, w if his heart would break: the briny tears coursing down his ruddy cheeks form little rivulets of salt water with high emb of genuine soil on either side, and a distracted map of a war-ridden country is depicted upon his grief-stricken countena of compassion for the suffering, the tender heart of the Poet melts at the sight, and in mellifluous tones he asks, "What matter, BUB?"

Sobbingly digging his fists into his eyes, and carefully wiping his classic nose on the sleeve of his jacket, the heart-bro mourner murmurs:—

"I've lost my sheep, And don't know where to find them," and bursts forth into a prolonged howl. That heart-rending cry of agony is too much for the gentle Poet, who, sinking u ground beside the weeper, ventures to whisper a hope that Time, or some of the neighbors, may bring back the lost she restore happiness and tranquillity to the agitated bosom. The suggestion is met with incredulous scorn and another burs uncontrollable sorrow, amid the pauses of which Bob recounts to his sympathetic friend how, "being wearied with wat gambolling sheep, he laid himself down in the meadow to sleep, and never awoke till a blue-bottle fly, who buzzing ab tickled his eye that sleep fled away. Then he rose to his feet, and looked around for the gambolling sheep, but found, th gone he couldn't tell where: so he threw himself down in the deepest despair, bemoaning his strange unaccountable los horrible beating he'd get from the Boss, when at night he went home with his sad tale of woe. He was sure he would ne courage to go."

The sad tale so pathetically and ingenuously told melted the already simmering heart of the hearer, who counselled tran and philosophy in the words "Let them alone and they'll come home," and jocularly added, as he saw a ray of hope lighting up the eye of the boy, like the first rays of the sun seen through a

"And bring their tails behind them." The brilliant idea of their tails coming behind them instead of before them tickled the risibilities of the sympathizing fr for a few moments the woods echoed to their responsive mirth.

The laugh did them good. The poet perceived instantly he had a theme upon which to build his verse, and hastily biddin "good-by," he flew exultingly to his paternal abode, rushed up the garret stairs, seized his goose-quill, and amid the tum beatings of his over-charged heart and throbbing brain jotted down on the instant, in all the enthusiasm of poetic fervor incident that had fallen under his inspired observation. Not to be too personal, and still to preserve the truthfulness of th he dropped a few letters from BOB PEEPER'S name, while, with a wonderful accuracy unknown to modern writers, he the subject of his verse, its misery, the remedy and result, and facetiously gives to the world the same cause for laughte inspiration that he received so gratefully. 83 NASSAU STREET, NEW YORK. 28

THE POLITEST NATION IN THE WORLD.

We had always considered JOHNNY CRAPAUD as the pink of politeness. But we are now satisfied that JOHNNY BU ever so far ahead of him. We have never known that Frenchman yet, who would oblige his enemies by killing himself. recent loss of the Captain shows that the noble Englishmen are prepared to do this by wholesale. One could wish our e worse luck than to have a few such Captains given them. And how lavish the expenditure! It takes no end of money to of those big iron-plated coffins. It is certainly a dramatic, auto-da-fé and a most obliging act, considered with reference possible enemies. No Frenchman ever thought of such a thing. In fact, they go no further than positively declining to do bad with their navy.

AS MEN'S CLOTHES ARE CUT HOUR-GLASS FASHION NOW, PUNCHINELLO SUGGESTS THE ABOVE P AS AN APPROPRIATE ONE FOR THEM.

THE ALARM-BELLE AT RYE. At Rye, Westchester County, a small town Built near the Sound, but of a scant renown, That always to its biggest size did run At summer-time, beneath a blazing sun, But rested as a town, as if to say, "I'll pay no further taxes, come what may;"— The ancient cobbler, JOHN, unknown to fame (So many cobblers since have borne the name), Owned the great belle of all that country place, His daughter, with her tongue and lovely face, Who took to soothing every kind of pain, Tramped through the streets, dragging a muddy train. With kerchief blowed her horn both, loud and long. And talked incessantly of every wrong, Kept her tongue wagging, until right was done. Thus did the daughter of old cobbler John.

What mighty good this BERGH of that Burgh did. While her tongue lasted, she had never hid: Suffice it that, as all things must decay, The fleshy tongue at length was worn away; She mouthed it for a while, and people dreamed Of golden days before this belle had screamed. Loaded and beat their horses at their ease. Drove thorn with, wounded backs and broken knees, Turned turtles over, and e'en tortured clams. Murdered trichinæ, when they boiled their hams. Till one, a doctor, who was passing by, Struck by the horrors going on in Rye, Cut from a calf, that yet was very young. And kindly gave unto the belle, a tongue.

By chance it happened that in Rye town dwelt. A German grocer (and his wife, a Celt), Who loved his lager and his pretzels too (His wife was partial to the morning dew). But, when we fell into these troublous times, He cared for nothing but to save his dimes.

Just as the donkey chanc'd to feel, you know, Which he would ride, whenever his brigade Was ordered to the streets for a parade; But as the times got hard, he'd loudly swear The oats that donkey ate he could not spare. At length he said: "I'll turn him out, py Gott!" Looked at his wife and to her said, "Vy not? Let him go eat upon the public ways, I want him only for the training days." So the poor donkey had to feed on thistles. Until his hair became like unto bristles.

One afternoon, when everybody slept Except the belle, out from her house she crept, And met the donkey, walking on the way; He smelt the calf and thought to have some play. Kicked up his heels, a grating bray did utter. And laid the belle a-rolling in the gutter. She raised a mighty shout, she raised a squeal. And loudly her persistent tongue did peal, And this did seem the burden of her song: "Some chap hath done a wrong, hath done a wrong!

"Meanwhile from street and lane a noisy crowd" Of vagabonds and urchins, shouting loud, Gathered around the poor, bedraggled squealer, Until at length there came a stout Rye peeler; Who forthwith told the belle her cries to cease. And took her to a Justice of the Peace.

The Justice heard the story of the belle, And looking wise and grave, he said: "'Tis well; Bring me the old Dutchman." The grocer brought, Shaking with fear, then stood before the Court.

And then' the Justice to recite began The charter of the Cruelty to AnImals Society, and then he said: "Pride rideth on a donkey, as I've read, Until it gets a fall, and then it loses Its dignity and blubbers o'er its bruises. These are newspaper proverbs, but I fear You don't love proverbs, as you do your beer. Just take that donkey and give him an oat, And don't show up until you've brushed his coat."

The cobbler heard and almost split his knee [He took it for the lapstone in his glee], "Church bells," quoth he, "but ring us to the mass. My belle hath gone and saved a starving ass; And this shall make, when put in jingling rhyme, The Belle of Rye all famous for all time."

A CHEERFUL SUBJECT.

According to an Ohio paper, a double child has been born to a couple named FINLEY, in Morrow county. It is, so to sp double-ender, being provided with a supplementary head at the point where the feet are usually situated. The child is a female-and a very curious amendment to the Sixteenth Amendment, since, should it arrive at woman's estate, it will, of entitled to a double vote. How will it be should one end go Republican and the other Democratic? To send a duplex wo the world seems to be a very unnecessary freak of Nature, seeing that there is enough of duplicity in womankind alread

This superb building will be devoted to retail purposes, where every description of dry-goods, from the necessary and convenient to the most elegant and fashionable, will attract a multitudinous throng, and add even a new attraction to the brilliancy of Broadway in the most delightful part of the thoroughfare. Besides an immense trade extending to all parts of the United States, LORD & TAYLOR deal largely in carpets and oil-cloths, in upholstery and house furnishing goods, and especially in trousseaux, cloaks, and ladies' furnishing goods of all kinds, in which, perhaps, their business is heavier than that of any other house in the city. The furnishing of hotels and steamboats is one of their specialties. The headquarters of their wholesale trade is at the old Broadway and Grand street store, while their stock of carpets and oil-cloths is mainly limited to the Grand and Chrystie street establishment. Since the organization of the firm, five partners have retired with fortunes, to make room for younger men, thus affording opportunities for others to profit by the experience and success of the house. These changes have also had the effect to maintain the original vigor of the firm without detaching from the maturity of judgment that has marked its operations. Some idea of the magnitude of the business of the house may be inferred from the fact that the pay-roll contains the names of more than 1,000 persons.

The Project Gutenberg eBook of PUNCHINELLO Vol. II, No. 34. Section 2. Information about the Mission of Project Gutenberg-tm

Project Gutenberg-tm is synonymous with the free distribution of electronic works in formats readable by the widest variety of computers including obsolete, old, middle-aged and new computers. It exists because of the efforts of hundreds of volunteers and donations from people in all walks of life. Volunteers and financial support to provide volunteers with the assistance they need, is critical to reaching Project Gutenberg-tm's goals and ensuring that the Project Gutenberg-tm collection will remain freely available for generations to come. In 2001, the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation was created to provide a secure and permanent future for Project Gutenberg-tm and future generations.

General Information About Project Gutenberg-tm electronic

Professor Michael S. Hart is the originator of the Project Gutenberg-tm concept of a library of electronic works that could be freely shared with anyone. For thirty years, he produced and distributed Project Gutenberg-tm eBooks with only a loose network of volunteer support. Project Gutenberg-tm eBooks are often created from several printed editions, all of which are confirmed as Public Domain in the U.S. unless a copyright notice is included. Thus, we do not necessarily keep eBooks in compliance with any particular paper edition. Each eBook is in a subdirectory of the same number as the eBook's eBook number, often in several formats including plain vanilla ASCII, compressed (zipped), HTML and others. Corrected EDITIONS of our eBooks replace the old file and take over the old filename and etext number. The replaced older file is renamed. VERSIONS based on separate sources are treated as new eBooks receiving new filenames and etext numbers.

The Project Gutenberg eBook of PUNCHINELLO Vol. II, No. 34. http://www.gutenberg.net This Web site includes information about Project Gutenberg-tm, including how to make donations to the Project Gutenberg Literary Archive Foundation, how to help produce our new eBooks, and how to subscribe to our email newsletter to hear about new eBooks. EBooks posted prior to November 2003, with eBook numbers BELOW #10000, are filed in directories based on their release date. If you want to download any of these eBooks directly, rather than using the regular search system you may utilize the following addresses and just download by the etext year. http://www.ibiblio.org/gutenberg/etext06 (Or /etext 05, 04, 03, 02, 01, 00, 99, 98, 97, 96, 95, 94, 93, 92, 92, 91 or 90) EBooks posted since November 2003, with etext numbers OVER #10000, are filed in a different way. The year of a release date is no longer part of the directory path. The path is based on the etext number (which is identical to the filename). The path to the file is made up of single digits corresponding to all but the last digit in the filename. For example an eBook of filename 10234 would be found at: http://www.gutenberg.net/1/0/2/3/10234 or filename 24689 would be found at: http://www.gutenberg.net/2/4/6/8/24689 An alternative method of locating eBooks: http://www.gutenberg.net/GUTINDEX.ALL
